What is a Tintype? 
A Tintype is a photographic process from the 1850's that is a direct positive image captured on a black enameled aluminum or tin sheet. One of many things that differentiate it from other photographic processes is that it is a camera-original positive. In other words, most photography is a capture image today, then print the image at a later date. In the tintype process, the image and print are the same thing and made at the same time. There is no negative to make reproduction prints. Hence, each image is one of a kind.
